When Will The Disaster Be Complete?

(Image from CNN.com)

Ever since Friday, since the disaster in Japan struck, I've just been completely glued to the computer and TV, hoping to find a 'GOTCHA!! Early April Fool's Joke!' but none was to be found. In fact, by Saturday, I knew but didn't want to know that the morning light will only bring on worse news.

Frankly, the disaster affected my work mainly because I have friends in Japan who were affected by the quake. Thankfully, none of them were injured and are still very much alive if not shaken to the core of their every nucleus or atom or something-like-cell....gosh, I'm bad at science. Can you tell?

But what can be worse than an earthquake that magnitude which was followed by a sweeping tsunami? A hurricane? A meteor slamming right into (just) Japan? Or maybe aliens abducting the whole nation. None of the above. Instead, it's a failing nuclear power plant. Now that we have that, it should be a COMPLETE disaster.

But no, Mother Nature decides, it most definitely is not rock bottom yet. Apparently, scientists believe that the people from the land of the rising sun may suffer continuous aftershocks followed by the threat of a stronger aftershock of at least 7.0 on the scale within the next few days. Speculation...yeah but when scientists talk like that, they've usually done their math. And being scientists from a country that came up with Nintendo and robots, I am only supposing, they are pretty good.

Therefore, I sit here thinking why am I thinking so much and maniacally hunting down news about the catastrophe and I came up with a couple of theories.

1. I like sushi and sushi is going to be pretty expensive now
2. I love the Japanese spirit and this is heart-breaking
3. It's too close for comfort.
4. 2012
5. IT. JUST RECENTLY. HAPPENED. TO. SO. MANY. BLOODY. COUNTRIES. ISN'T THIS ENOUGH ALREADY??!!

I think the fifth theory is the one that I am going with. What about you? Tomorrow's Monday ad I have to get back to work...hopefully...when I am not looking up 'nuclear radiation' tags on Twitter. Or refreshing the CNN page.

Nutcase. That, I am. So, if you want to join the self-destructive neurotic gang, head on over here.

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I mean.....aawwwwww......how come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…
